the attack that killed ambassador stevens and three other americans. for example, they say that ambassador stevens used to jog almost daily, frequently with his security detail. but that the -- according to their sources they say, a pro-gadhafi facebook website posted a stacked photo of stevens and also a threat against him. so he stopped temporarily stopped for about a week. and then he went back again. here's what congressman daryl issa tells cnn. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless and took the advice always of his security forces including sometimes when they said meetings needed to be canceled. so i think this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security and a failure of judgment. but not of the now-deceased ambassador. >> and, wolf, there are other incidents in fact we've been reporting on them all along that they note. one was an assailant blowing a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission tworks rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and finally the most serious probably was other

is an absolute mess. i think -- i've heard stuart stevens as saying let's focus on the economy. i think stuart stevens is exactly right. americans don't care as much in the polls about foreign policy. but several weeks later after this, i think it's very legitimate now that the press is going in and a couple of weeks have passed since the ambassador's death, now, yes. i mean, he's got a responsibility to talk about how badly the white house bungled this. >> i think he does. and indeed, you know, i think right now, the focus is a little misplaced. the notion that -- i think the white house is pretty credible in saying that they're learning more, that their initial instiblgt -- they didn't know the situation was initially, that they've explained it better as they've done intelligence assessments, but it raises the more fundamental question which is why was the consulate not secure? how was it that security issues, as opposed to their stories afterward, these are american lives at stake in an unstable region, what are the intelligence failures? what were the security failures? those are fundament
braechz, and attacks in libya leading up to the killing of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans. for example, stevens, they say, took regular early morning jogs around tripoli with members of the security detail, but according to their sources, a pro-gadhafi facebook page trumpheted those runs, posting a threat against the ambassador along with a stock photo of him. stevens stopped running for about a week. then resumed. >> all indications are the ambassador was not reckless, and he took the advice always of his security forces, including sometimes when they said that meetings needed to be canceled, so i think that this is a failure of intelligence, a failure of security, and a failure of judgment, but not of the now diocesed ambassador. >> there were other security braechz, according to the committee and a sale that blew a hole in the security perimeter at the north gate of the benghazi mission. two rocket propelled grenade rounds were fired at the benghazi office of the red cross. and the convoy carrying the british ambassador was attacked by a militant with a grenad

steven straussberg. >> thaif, dave. let me ask you, to comment on what you were saying because were you there from the very beginng. seven years, not really a long time. it has been a long time for washingtonians over the whole period of decades but for the nationals, seven years, not bad. >> not at all. very quick. when you think about the long suffering cubs fans who have not won anything since the 1910 time frame. and the red sox before, they broke their curse, back in 2004, we're talking about, you know, 50, 60, 70 years. and to do it in seven years, to win a division title, it is really impressive and you have to tip your cap to davey johnson and mike rizzo, the front office, they have done a great job. the warner family. they've done it the right way. building in the draft. and they did that with guys like steven straussberg. and guys like bryce harper. and going out and trading for geo gonzalez last year who has already won 20 games. they put together the team the right way. and i don't think this is is a flash in the pan. i don't think this is a one-hit wonder. i think the nats
in a region where it's been very volatile. these are bureaucratic decisions. and ambassador stevens made the decision to go to benghazi. what problem may emerge here, he went to benghazi with inadequate security. we have to understand that our embassies are not protected and our ambassadors are not protected by the marines or by u.s. personnel all the time. they're protected by the local government officials that provide that security. and chris was known as someone who didn't like the envelope of security around him. i think the real issue here is not so much whether or not the president or the administration was at fault, but whether or not the senior management level at the state department did not do their job adequately to make sure that chris was adequately protected going into a zone that was clearly -- all of us knew was dangerous from the get go. after all, the british ambassador had just come under attack in benghazi a month and a half before chris lost his life >> yes. how do americans separate the facts from politics though, mark, in these kinds of situations from either side

is going to go all out and double down on exploiting the tragic death of ambassador stevens to make the president look terrible at foreign policy despite his successful record of it. do you think that's a game changer for mitt romney? can he use this tragedy to try to make the president an object of scorn? >> well, first of all the tricky thing there is that there is a debate that's on foreign policy. the last of the three debates they'll have. so he has two debates in between now and then that are going to be mostly focused on the economy and their domestic issues. that being said, there is a potential it would seem to make some hay out of the administration's changing story or at least incomplete story that they have given along the way about what happened in benghazi, whether it was a terrorist attack, whether it was something that could have been prevented. is it something that was bumbled at some point either in the -- the ways that it could have been stopped or what was going on afterwards. those are things that ther

and government is not something close to an all-time high with me. if you have a conversation with stuart stevens, then how they conversation with mike leavitt, to do for. obama's more complicated and i don't have that many private conversations at the top people, but that would not be that the slum under. it's a very different conversation than one you would have a chocolate or whoever is really thinking through what obama would actually do in november, december of this year and in the first six months of next year. so i don't think it's impossible. i think that maybe we have to conduct ourselves, to get about the business of governing. i don't buy the argument that partisanship is so bad you couldn't get democratic votes for republican budget or vice versa. i think there will be a certain momentum to do with programs at the reelected president or newly elected president, given the absence of third-party candidates that will be an unusual situation where we haven't had a longtime, the certain kind of mandate. but in any case, it's not going to be -- were not going to get a lot of clues about thi

have heard from the president and the man and want to be president. let's begin with you. steven is on the phone from buffalo. a democrat. caller: basically, i feel the role of government is to protect our basic rights, and there is nothing more basic and clean air and clean water. this has been totally forgotten in the last years of debate. ecology is not even mentioned. this basically exemplifies modern man's complete dissociation and disconnection from the natural world to the point that nature distained reading is sustained. that is the basic difficulty. in fact, the attachment is so great, as even skewed perception of physical reality. you are constantly hearing the word growth and overbooking one simple fact. you cannot grow infinitely on a finite planet, fun and natural resources, especially water. all of these candidates are neglecting this. this is life itself, and it has nothing to do with the americans, or europeans, or india. it has to do with the human species. and our survival. i would like these candidates to address the one simple fact, what are you talking about
